ELKIN — Foothills Theatre will stage a production of Rogers and Hammerstein’s “Cinderella” this weekend at Elkin High School’s Dixon Auditorium.

“Foothills Theatre presents the Rodgers & Hammerstein’s classic story that has captivated audiences for years. After a two year delay, we are thrilled to finally get this show on the stage, so come on a journey with us and see the fun and charming way we present Cinderella,” said Director Mike Cheek.

The play features well known songs such as, “In My Own Little Corner” and “Impossible.”

“Cinderella” will feature several newcomers to Foothills Theatre including Madison Robertson and Marcus Orta, who play Cinderella and Prince Christopher.

Foothills veteran performers Brian Horton and Vicky Zickmund play the king and queen and Judy Deck the fairy godmother.

“It is such a joy to act with this young cast and see so much fresh talent shining on our stage. It’s as if I waved a magic wand!” said Deck.
